Many thanks for this, it helps considerably
I shall send this to my sister Karen who is our researcher in chief.
Her research confirms the Beary/Barry link.
It has Patrick (Ardfinnan) as the father of James, but do not anything before that.
She has been in touch with those on the Keane side of the family but I do not think she had the Gladstone St address in Clonmel.
Anything else you have, or any suggestions for going back before Patrick would help.I am based
in Clonmel at present so could follow up on any leads suggested.
Regards and thanks again.
